CEO, Aaron Tennant, and President, Melissa Pepper, are going over the edge for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mississippi Valley! On August 24, the adventurous leaders of Total Solutions will rappel off Hotel Blackhawk in Downtown Davenport for a great cause.

For more than 30 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mississippi Valley has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As a donor-supported volunteer organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 7 through 18, throughout eastern Iowa and western Illinois. The matchings develop positive friendships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

Before Melissa had “littles” of her own, she was a Big and saw first-hand the impact the program made in the Quad Cities community.

“I loved being a Big!” she says. “That’s why I have committed to raise dollars for the right to rappel off a perfectly well-constructed 11-story building in downtown Davenport!”

By supporting Melissa and Aaron, you can give hundreds of children the gift of a positive adult in their lives. Don’t leave Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mississippi Valley hanging, support the Over the Edge Challenge today!
